Rediff exodus is an ominous sign

Since August, Rediff has lost four key executives -

– Long time product head – Zaki Ansari – who quit in August to join UTV New Media

– India Abroad editorial director Prem Panicker quit to join Yahoo India

– CFO Joy Basu left in August

– Most recently, Salil Chandrashekar, director of product development (was also spearheading Rediff’s minimalist approach)

A couple of executive moves here and there could be easily dismissed as normal. However, when 4 key executives quit in a short span of time, its definitely not a good sign.

Either there’s some internal turmoil @ Rediff or something else. None the less, such an exodus is a huge blow to Rediff, who I honestly think has already faltered with its minimalist strategy.

  1. “faltered with minimalist strategy”

    How is that? Its far easier and interesting to browse the much cleaner rediff.

  2. Rediff is far best unbiased news content site which I have seen but its marketing and flaws in customer complaints follow-ups is hitting it hard.

    It is also getting very severe competition from India Times which is backed by Times group and really good marketing folks.

    Still Rediff has good reader and online shopper base so it’s good time they wake up and look at their strategies.

  12. I really wish physical exercises released the GBA 2003 variation instead. now that was honestly remaking a classic game while still retaining it’s charm and so it’s new and original. I really don’t similar to the new art.

  13. Having real money involved just means rich people have an immediate advantage & can simply obtain way to the best gear which in turn encourages those damn pesky asian farmers that are the plague of superior mmorpg’s. An auction house is advisable but a real money one of them? Even WoW doesn’t have that and look how badly infested that game is by using farmers and gold spammers!
